Wow, I felt so loved this morning when I started receiving email after email from Splitcoast Stampers. I couldn't figure out what was happening! Then I kept reading about being the Featured Stamper but really wasn't sure what that even was. After spending half the afternoon trying to locate the Featured Stamper Forum, I finally found it! I must totally admit that I use Splitcoast Stampers only as an online location to store my cards for easy access and have not spent much time looking around Splitcoast. In the past few months some of my cards have been listed as favorites! I greatly appreciate all of your sweet comments. and will stop by personally to visit each of you. Thanks so much! What a fun way to play along....!!! I will proudly display my new badge! Even as I am writing this more emails are coming in. Again I feel so loved! Thanks for honoring me this week! What fun it is to see your inspiration from my cards! 

Hugs, Judi

You are the Best!

The moment I saw the rooster and hen images at ADFD I knew that I wanted to use one of them.  I grew up on a farm and at times had the responsibility of gathering eggs from the hen house.  I enjoyed getting the eggs, that is...until the ROOSTER would start chasing and pecking me to get away from his harem.  Despite his meanness, I always enjoyed his beautiful colors especially the turquoise feathers. I think I will make peace with the family rooster! So in honor of my favorite rooster I decided to create this card! And then I decided to do a second one.  I love the fun sketch that Sally created for us to use at SSW2.  It was quick and easy to put together.

This is the inside of my cards!

Well, as you can tell. A Day for Daisies is our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2!  Tammy is an incredibly unique artist. I love her work.  I'm sure you will love looking around her store.  I know you will want more than one why not play along with us this week.  You could be our lucky Grand Prize Winner at SSW2 and win 12 free digis from ADFD.  So start creating and have some fun!  Check out all the rules at SSW2!

 A Day For Daisies began as a small token to a constant need to create. Pairing a love of whimsical illustration, with a tidy graphic design background, Tammy S Thompson, produced her first stamp designs, introducing irresistibly sweet stamps to crafters around the globe. Drawing inspiration from the beautiful world around us, she strives to express the happiness and gratitude she feels in each stamp design she creates.
Presently, A Day For Daisies has grown to over 3,000 Digital Stamps with a quickly expanding line of Best Loved Clear Polymer. A Day For Daisies has been published and awarded over the years for innovative and unique designs created to inspire the crafting community. With a whole team behind her now, she remains passionate about illustration, obsessed with quality, and dedicated to her customers. A Day For Daisies thanks you for your ideas, comments, and creativity!

This is the sketch for this week's challenge!
